Either way the case is different with Wiggins becuase he claims to be the model anti doper so when we find proof of him praising Lance, he is actually contradicting himself.
And more importantly contradicting things he said in 2007.
The idea that we are not allowed to ask questions over peoples behavior is buill****. By your same logic there was absolutely nothing suspcision about Armstrong chasing down seimeoni or spiting on Bassons.
When someone says that they find doping so reviolting that they dont know if they can come back to the sport then 2 years later come back, deniy they ever felt that way, are best friends with the dopers and curse at anyone who asks questions, I and others reserve the right to scratch our heads and ask - hang on, what is going on here.
Your - oh but you are not allowed to ask these questions, bull**** resembles lawyers using loopholes to make sure their clients dont have to answer questions in court.
Thankfully this isnt a court of law and if peoples behaviour is suspicious we are perfectly within our rights to poiint that out.
